Maine Rocks Delay
The race committee decided to delay the Maine Rocks Race until September 19-20 because of Danny. I was able to confirm that the Around Isleboro Race has a single handed division so I'll enter that the weekend prior. It's not very long, so it's probably just a day race, but I'm hoping a bunch of the Maine Rocks entrants will participate as there's some very accomplished sailors in the bunch. For the time being, I'm holed up in Somes Harbor on MDI waiting out the storm which was downgraded and shouldn't deliver much more than 40 knot gusts. I'll spend the next two weeks hiking/biking/sailing around MDI and visiting with friends and family in the area.
